Critical meeting Thursday with DFO scientists and officials could launch a once-contentious industry in B.C.

B.C. seal meat could soon be appearing in seafood shops and restaurant menus if a proposed commercial seal and sea lion hunt gets the green light at a meeting Thursday in Vancouver.

The Pacific Balance Pinnipeds Society (PBPS) has submitted the plan to Fisheries and Ocean Canada and the two parties will be discussing the fine details of how a hunt would work — things like harvesting, transport, processing and marketing.
